As promised, I’m here with another post on #FridayConnect… A day when I try my best to connect with people who write to me and try to connect with me. I love you all dearly.
Whether or not, I’m able to reply to you on my other posts, emails, messages, or on other social media, but this one place, #MyCorner, is a place where I promise that I will always, always reply to you… otherwise, there is no reason to have this corner especially for us!!
It’s Friday again… and what a day it is … It’s Valentine’s day!
It’s a day to talk about love, express love and I can see love is in the air. So, why don’t we talk about love… So much has been said about love… poets have written poems, sonnets, songs serenaded to their loved ones… painters have painted love in abstracts… people have crossed miles in search of love and authors have written books… It has been the most inspiring emotion for all artists and non-artists alike…
I’ve always wondered how diverse are different versions, definitions, theories about love… None is all-inclusive or comprehensive… And still, each is complete in its own way…
So, let’s talk about what love means to each one of us…today, I’ll write in very short about what love means to me. And after that, I will be waiting to hear what ‘you’ think love is…
For me –
Love is a deep-seated feeling that brings you peace just by knowing that the other person is happy and safe. Love is the sense of security and warmth you get with someone that you will never need to find it in anyone else. Love is knowing that whatever mistakes I do, I will be accepted. I can say the truth and will be understood. I won’t have to defend myself. Love is respecting someone’s identity, existence, likes, dislikes, and individuality. Love is trust. Love is chemistry. An unexplained connection that is beyond the shallowness of lust and basics of attraction. Love is the inherent need to know that someone you love is fine and you will sacrifice anything in your capacity to ensure that. Love is the ability to tell someone – that you are independent to make your choices. Don’t worry, go ahead, I have your back! And should you fail, you can fall back, I’ll be there to hold you.
Those who are not in love, call it complicated. People in love – find it pretty simple… 🙂
So… It’s your turn now. Tell me, what does love mean to you. Write in the comment box below… I would love to read your views…
Go ahead. I’m waiting to hear from you…
Lots and lots and lots of love,
Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Love is beautiful. You are on top of the world when in love. Always smiling and happy. Everything ugly around too seems delicious. To continue being in that type of feeling, you need to actually love, respect and be proud of that person. Differences are there in every two person. That wont matter. With space, understanding and trust, love thrives and grows.
I haven’t been in love yet but love for me is too many things..trust on your partner which is very must for me..you should have that individual freedom or u can say independency in many ways..respect for each other..the person never gets tired of me even when i have mood swings or when i m angry or not being myself bcz I expect from that person that he will be there for me not matter how messed up i am and vice versa for him..in love both should be equal in all the way..when that person’s name comes anywhere u just smile:) the person who understands you without you saying anything..love is when that person will be able to take all your pain just by their presence whether physically they present or not..love is when that person is your best friend first then your lover or life partner:)when those little things makes you feel so special that yes he/she is making so much efforts for you..and they will be there no matter what the situation is..when their happiness makes you so much happy even when u didn’t have the good day or something..love is when u complete each other..When u can share anything and everything with them without fear of being judged..when u share that comfortable silence with them..when they pamper you with small small things..
Ahh my definition for love is too long i guess🙈but yes this is my definition of love:) it might be extend in future whenever i fell in love😁
For me love is pure and unconditional. Accepting each other with whole hearts, not trying to preach or impose any changes on each other. Learning and growing together, enjoying each others company by sometimes speaking your heart out or sometimes not even saying a single word but still enjoy the comforting silence. A relationship where we stand with each other, always have each other’s back and never judge the person. A companion with whom you would like to share everything and probably the only one person you would look for to share your most happiest or saddest feelings.
Very beautifully written 👏🏼👏🏼
I agree with each word. Thank you for sharing.
Love is feeling we can feel it with the other person’s action let it be parents, siblings ,boyfriend/husbund.
So true !!
Love is a beautiful feeling, you don’t love a person in parts, you accept them with all thier flaws and goodness …as a whole . Love doesn’t need to specify a particular relationship..be it between siblings, between spouses,between the mother and a child , towards God or towards pets the word love itself screams purity and sacredness!!
Love for me is to be yourself and expect honesty in the relationship. It goes beyond being judgemental and respect the person as a whole with their flaws. Love is to grow and evolve into better people together.. where the mere presence of the other would suffice to fight against all odds…
I feel this kind of love in most of your stories Manita from Trespro to now Tangles and Ties…Love has this positive aura around us… Looking forward to a great year ahead in this beautiful journey with you..
Love for me is just being there for each other…when you don’t need words to assure the other one instead even your silence does the magic. For me, love is trust because if u cannot trust the person with your secrets and don’t feel safe enough with them then you can’t imagine the rest of your life with them. Love is like that abundant source of light that enhances your life with happiness yet ensures that when sadness enters it stays temporarily, not lessening the light of happiness. For me love is not just a word, it’s a deep seated feeling that I am yet to feel but I know it’s going to be magical
For me love is my parents, my siblings, you and your writings, my friends and MaNan. I want to see you all happy, health , safe and successful. Happy valentine’s Day to you Dii ….love you 😘😘
Happy valentine’s day to you……love is the core of life and its existence…..that pain a mother endures to bring a child to this world is love……when she touches the tiny palm and baby clutches it back is love……the happiness and the pride a father experiences after knowing about children’s success is love..having each other’s back at times good or bad without even communicating is love……praying and wishing for each other’s well being is love too……let’s all pledge to keep loving and also Express it sometimes to let the person know his or her value in our lives…….be it spouse parents children or friends…….
Loved it Anamika. Only a person with a heart full of love can write like this. So touching!
Love is another name of respect. The intensity may change but respect should not vanish.
I agree. If we can’t respect someone and value his/her individuality, identity then there is hardly any love.
And also, love is your mother keeping you safe and warm in her womb for 9 months..Love is the first touch of care.. love is the tears in your father’s eyes..Love is them, a love above all the loves
Without Any Doubt!!
Parents are epitome of selfless love!
Pyaar dosti hai
Kuch kuch hota h rahul vibes
Yes!! I got that!
SRK’s dialogues are on the tip of my lips 😀
Haan… perfect! Dosti is a must!
Love is home..Love is someone you can lean on..Someone who will hold and you would hold that person too.. who loves for who you are and stands for what you belief. Love is selfless
So beautifully said, Isha.
It seems every definition of love is like a blooming flower… spreading fragrance and happiness in its own way…
If it feels like home. It’s love!!
Yes! That’s the best in few words! Those words include ‘everything’…
Love is when ur sibling wants a reaction from you to his unethical taunts and just by getting an indirect answer from you gives him peace.
hahaha!! Whatta definition,… loved, loved… loved it!!
Siblings and parents are love!
Love is trust and honesty
I agree. Perfectly!
Ma’am will u update next T&T chapter today?
I wanted to update so I am writing… but it seems that it will take time… so I advise people to sleep. And read it tomorrow 🙂
Love is hearing Maasi from your 1.5 year old nephew😀
That is above everything else!!! Surreal!
In my opinion,if I can share my insecurities and deepest fears with him without the fear of being judged
If I can talk with him about the most uncomfortable things comfortably
If he tells me that he is with me in everything- good or bad, he never leave me alone
To do all the above things, trust is the key.
If you trust him enough to share everything…. literally everything…. And
A feeling that someone is there for you and will be with you humesha no matter what happens
That is called Love!
True. When you know that you are not being judged and in fact, accepted for who you are… you will not hesitate from sharing your true self…
Love is when you want to be together and will go to he’ll and back and still stay together regardless of any obstacles that come your way, someone who respect you and your wishes and vice versa, love can be anything that you want it to be.
And everything that everyone and yourself said that’s what love is!
The ability to support someone despite obstacles is the strongest and hardest test of love! And those who pass that define love 🙂
hello di. Hope you’re doing well. tbhhh I was waiting for masquerade announcement as well. 😅
your definition of love was truly something else di. For me love should be selfless.. The person who loves you should be able to love unconditionally despite your flaws and I guess no one in today’s world would behave the same..
also I feel love exists only in fiction and the same love always seems to crumble down in reality at present. and plus love is absolutely complicated. xD
Love, if taken in right context, exists in everything. As humans, we were sent to love each other. Parents love their children unconditionally and so do kids as they love their parents.
The only problem occurs when we attach unrealistic expectations to a feeling calling it love.
Like you said, love is selfless. If you love unconditionally, you definitely get it back!
The masquerade announcement is on the way 😀
Love is a very beautiful feeling. Knowing that the other person understands you more than any other person. Love is the freedom to make the choices and your partner supports you. A level where you can connect with the divine power.
Absolutely! That freedom which comes with the bonding is something so beautiful!
Happy valentines day to u too. I am not able to write in words -What is love for me ?
So i think – Love is that feeling which can’t be expressed in words and just can be felt when in love
Yes… can be felt deeply … and whatever you say about it, is less…
Love for me is a feeling which makes us feel at home…. whenever we are with that person….no matter in what situation we are.We just feel at home… whenever that person is around.Love is transparent….and whomever we are in love with…we don’t pretend and we are without any shield.We are so vulnerable yet feel so safe and secure.That feeling of trust….that the other will not hurt us and will not judge us…and the trust that whenever we stumble and fall in life that person will just hold your hand and won’t let you fall.That trust….that feeling of apnapan is love.Love is respecting each other and their opinions and capabilities.Love is understanding the subtle emotions without the other one even saying it sometimes.That is love.Love is one such feeling that.makes us experience all the emotions…its not just love what we feel for other
..at times we are angry…possessive… jealous…compassion…. disappointmemts..Love is the what makes our life complete and livable.
So beautifully expressed… I agree with all that you said… it’s hard to define, yet so simple to just feel it…
thank you Simar!
Happy valentines day to U Di ❤❤🤩
Happy Valentine’s Day dear!
Loads of love to you!
What should I say!! Never been in love. I will say whatever I had seen,heard and read till now. For me love is trust, small moments like holding hands, having deep conversation, arguing, pampering, being pampered evry little momennt spending with that spl someone defines love, love is caring, love never ages, when I see old age couple, the way they care and protect each other! When I witnessed it in a bus or anywhere, I was like ” I want this love” Forever wala love❤ accepting each other the way they are💕 for million reasons MaNan from T&T define love ❤❤
Forever wala love is such a sweet thing to idolize!!!
And thank you for quoting T&T… you just made my day!
Love to me is an everyday feeling . Love shouldn’t make you feel out of the world , it should provide you a protective cacoon in your very own world . Another definition for love in my life is the love of my maa , that moment jab no matter late she is getting for office she never ever leaves without kissing me on my cheeks ❤️💕
Awwwwww!!!! I have no words to say to this.
Our parents are the purest when it comes to defining love. They are the epitome of love in every sense.
Love is not a feeling which don’t lets us feel happy or removes our problem but is something which gives us peace in hardships….
Its not an safety measure it is the cure of everything every wound..
A person is your valentines not when he makes u happy he is your valentines whenev you have hardship you ruj to him like a baby run to his mum for warmth and care.
I can say whole day for this feeling though i don’t have a person as valentines its my pen who gives me virtual shoulder to cry always a good listner my pen.
And my books
Loved the way you expressed it. Pen and books are a refined way to explore your own thoughts. Great!!
Happy valentine’s day Manita! You explained so well what ‘love is’. You didn’t mention ‘who’ is your love. I know it’s personal questions, you don’t have to answer it. But for me it is my hubby.
Thank you for sharing Mercy!! May your love only grows manifold, every day!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you too dear. Love for me is trust, care, freedom and responsibility.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Ramya! Loads of love to you!
It doesn’t matter whether you are single or in a relationship, Ramya, the fact that you can feel love is more than enough to make you a beautiful person. Thanks for sharing your views 🙂
Love is happiness.. love is a feeling of completeness..
So simply stated… and yet so beautifully described!
Love is a very pure sentiment which one feels from deep heart cannot be undone in any situation of life . It’s a feeling of satisfaction we have when we see the person happy , growing and safe . At the end of the day we know if the person is fine we are more then fine . Sense of protection, care , sharing your happiness to sharing your deepest insecurities knowing that you will be supported even if you are wrong without any jugements . Praying to almighty to keep the person happy before you . It’s a uncontrollable feeling towards the person which keeps on growing everyday.
You have descrbed it so beautifully! Yes… it keeps growing every day…
Hy.. it’s same of mine too about love.. happy valentine’s day Di. Love you. 😘😘😘
Love you too, dear! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Love for me is essence of life and rest you explained beautifully which I echo 🙂
Happy Valentine’s day…
Essence of life – that gives life it’s meaning and fragrance… 😀 😀
Thank you for sharing your definition.
Love is ….something that gives you happiness even in ur hardest times…even when the world is against you ur love would stand by you, not only stand but will also tell u the wrong n right. The word “LOVE” itself makes you smile…n when u listen to that word it reminds u of that special person in ur life who stood with you, who understood without you explaining urself or ur actions. Love is a beautiful feeling that tells you that you can be loved, that u would also matter to someone.
Such a beautiful definition. How very well you said that…
Unconditional support in every phase of life is something only true love can do…
Actually u cannot pretend anything in front of that person…u just be ur real self …i hope i experience love soon😉❤❤
I just completed my graduation nd now doing my PG so i have very little experience when it come to love because I have never been in love😅. So it is little complicated for me. .But what I feel about love is that it’s a feeling of freedom, we’re u feel free to do anything nd everything without the fear of being judged. We’re u can take risk without any fear because u know that if you fall back there is someone to protect you nd hold you. This is what my parents are doing for me nd obviously they are the only love of my life till now nd my valentines every year❤❤. So yaeh this my little experience about love. .i hope I’m able to convey my feelings to you. Happy Valentine’s Day nd you the only wattpad writer with whom I fell in love by reading your stories💕
Please ignore my this comment as I write in again because I thought that my comment is not posted in comment box😂😂. .its just the same as above
I trashed it… and now I will delete this too… don’t worry… loved your comment by the way 🙂
That’ s so sweet of you to write those beautiful words for me. I’m touched.
Reg love – I agree. Being judgemental rules out love… for I feel that love sustains itself on acceptance 🙂
Happy valentines day didu.. well i dnt know what is the exact mean of love.. bt what u said is jst sound so perfect to be called love❤❤
Haha… it always happens like that. When someone writes something, we feel – Oh I wanted to write that only…
Love you, anyway!!
